utilities for wireless prism2 cards
linux-wlan-ng is a set of drivers and utilities that is intended to provide the full range of IEEE 802.11 MAC management capabilities for use in user-mode utilities and scripts. The package currently supports the Intersil 802.11b Prism2, Prism2.5, and Prism3 reference designs for PCMCIA, PCI, and USB. Additionally, the package includes support for the PLX9052 based PCI to PCMCIA adapter with a few different PCMCIA cards.
Please note that you probably do not need this package: The prism2_usb driver is included in the default kernel packages since 2.6.31. If you need firmware loading for your prism2_usb device, please just install the prism2-usb-firmware-installer package.
This package ships legacy utilities and scripts for advanced configuration and user-space firmware downloading (support for non-USB devices).
